    Yelli Screamy Photo Thread

    Other manufactures have these model photo threads, I say we start a Yelli Screamy Photo Thread to show off these sweet builds. I have a frame in route and will post up pics when the build is complete.

    Questions are okay, but lets keep the chatter to a minimum and keep this thread on topic.

    Posted this in the Yelli thread over in the 29er forum too.
    Wheels arrived yesterday, need a lockring tool to get the cassette on, and my SLX cranks to show up. 140mm Marz waiting on a headset.

    ncfisherman- That's a sharp build and the color frame I wanted to get. However I got a good deal on mine.
    Speaking of, here it is.

    In the photos of mine above...27lbs 15oz

    Now it's sitting at 28lbs 5oz with a couple changes...I swapped the Thomson for a Kindshock i950r and swapped the Hope Tech m4's for Magura MT8's. The rest of the build is pretty heavy...mainly the bar, fork, and wheelset.

    I see jeffw-13, nitrousjunky, and ncfisherman all have Marzocchi forks. What model is it, and what is the travel?

    Without combing back through all the posts, I'd be willing to bet that most of the Marzocchis you see are 2010 44s... Chainlove was blowing them out for $350 for a couple months late last summer. I have one at 140mm travel, which is the full length, but some shortened that.

    Half Price Build

    Well, here you go, finally done. My goal was to build this bike for at least half off MSRP and I don't work at a bike shop. It took over a year of scouring the net, but, it is together. And, I had to build my own wheels. I am waiting for the Kind Shock Lev seatpost, and I am going to make my own bashguard and it will be all the way complete. I could have sourced parts a little faster, but, I did not want any red on the bike. Thanks to Canfield for the stickers to cover up the red from the RockShox. Now, time to get it dirty.

    Thanks, I was trying to pick up the blue from the logo and I think it looks pretty darn good. The rims are the all mountain from these guys:

    Wider carbon mountain 29er rims clincher(tubeless-compatible) - light-bicycle

    They were quite easy to build although a little different than aluminum. They seem pretty damn beefy, but, I will know more when I get them on the trail.

    Here's my new ride!:



    Some parts are just temporary like the fork and seat. This bike rips up and down the trail.
    Rode it in a local race this weekend and it was awesome. Weighs in at 27lbs right now, i think with a few minor changes it will be around 25lbs. Like changing out the steel chainring for aluminum one.

    New Yellie for the Summer!!!

    Decided to build a Yelli for 2012. I rode a friends N9 and decided to go this direction as I didn't want another SS. With the help of Sean at Canfield (Thanks,Great customer service) I went with the new green ano. in Medium. Weight was never factored in the build. Just wanted a solid bike that I could let anyone try out. I set it up for single track riding here in Texas. Build finished out at 25# 12oz. Specs are as follows:

    Med Canfield frame
    2012 XT crank,brakes,cassette
    Thomson s.post,clamp,90mm stem
    X9 rr. short cage der, shifter
    Stans Arch EX wheelset
    Reba RLT Ti fork set at 100mm
    Specialized Captain Tires 2.2fr,2.0rr
    Salsa Whammy bar 11deg x 720mm

    Heading to the trails for the first ride.

    I picked up a large anodized green. I need to cut down the brake hoses to finish the build. Everything but the brakes was borrowed from my previous build (Salsa Big Mama).

    I ran both to the inside. The cable zip-tie tabs were spaced perfect for a clean install on thr rear. I put an extra zip-tie high on the fork slider to hold the front housing tight. Your going to like this bike. Very nice handlind frame.

    Wanted a 29er that I could also ride on my backyard pump track, so I got a Yelli Screamy. Perfect - better than my 26" STP1.

    Yelli Screamy - Small Frame
    RockShox Revelation RL fork - set at 130mm
    Cane Creek 40 headset
    Easton Havoc stem - 50mm
    Easton EC70 CNT MonkeyLite XC bars - 685mm
    ODI Rogue lock-on grips
    Avid BB7 Brakes with 160mm HS1 rotors and Titanium Speed Dial 7 levers
    Jagwire Ripcord brake and shifter cables - Rose Thorn
    Shimano XT shifter
    Shimano XT rear derailleur
    Shimano SLX 10 speed cassette
    Truvativ Holzfeller OCT 1.1 crankset with RaceFace 36t chainring and Blackspire chainguide
    Wellgo B103 pedals
    KMC Pink Lady X10SL Limited Edition chain
    Crank Brothers Cobalt 2 seatpost - 350mm w/20mm setback
    WTB Rocket V Racer saddle
    Stans Crest rims on Hope Pro2 Evo hubs w/20mm axle in front
    Panaracer Rampage tires (tubeless)- 2.35" wide
    26.6 pounds

    *While looking for a chain I came across the KMC Pink Lady Limited Edition X10SL. KMC donates 15% of the proceeds to breast cancer research. My sister is a breast cancer survivor, so I couldn't pass up the chain and just went with that color scheme. That, and I like pink and black together...

    Pictures taken in my back yard.

    Sweet build! The gold chain is a nice touch. I have a similar color scheme on mine, and am planning on white hoses/housing when I do my next teardown.

    Top Rankin' Slackness

    I can't say enough good things about this bike. After reading many reviews I settled on a large Yelli (I'm 6'), Sean at Canfield was extremely helpful and my frame arrived soon after the order was placed. I built it up with a 2 x 10 - 24/33 w/bashguard up front and 12/36 in the rear. The front fork was the big decision, with advice of MTBR members Kevinboyer and Brianwyer (thanks for your help guys) I settled on a Fox Talas 120/95 fork. The bike was fairly easy to assemble with special attention given to the transmission because the tolerances are pretty tight. My thoughts, if you want to run a 2x10 (or 3x) system without spacers which because of the short chainstays the less spacers the better to achieve a good chain line, don't use anything bigger than a 34 as your big ring for the 2x10 (or middle ring on a 3x). Small ring on the rear cassette should be a 12 or bigger, an 11 when in granny up front will cause the chain to drag on the chainstay. I also feel that a 22 as a granny is too small and will cause the chain to drag on the stay aswell, 24 seems to be the best size for the small ring. The rest of the build was easy, Stan's Flows tubeless with Hans Dampf's, Shimano brakes, Thomson post and an assortment of other quality parts to complete the build. The bike as pictured weights 28lbs.

    The ride is awesome, and the bike handles extremely well in all situations. The bikes short wheelbase and progressive geometry result in immediate and positive response from rider input. The Fox Talas fork works great. On steep climbs the front end can get a little floaty so its nice to have the option to lower the front. On the downhills and on the flats the 120 HA makes this bike alot of fun to ride. Love the Hans Dampf's they climb well and really soften the ride when it gets rough. For now this will be my goto bike since every time I get on it I can't wipe the s#!t eating grin off my face.

    Very nice gulljammer. I knew you would love this bike once it was built up.

    On a side note, sorry I didn't get back to you on your question about the "little holes" you asked me about. Honestly I don't know what they are for.

    I sent Sean an email asking the same question, his reply " Those holes you are referring to are vent holes. Almost EVERY frame has them on one spot or another on the bike. The ideais to let gas escape when you are welding the frames. With out, it could
    create pressure inside the frame and pop when heat treated. 100% normal.
    I haven't heard of anyone filling them, most people when the wash their
    bike, spray in and around it anyways."

    How do you like the Loop fork? I'm considering a 120mm version, but a bit concerned about the lack of lockout. I like to stand and mash.

    Paint looks great.

    Its 10x better than the fox float 120 rlc it replaced. If you turn the compression all the way in, you do get a lock-out of sorts, once you set the threshold for your weight or riding style.

    Btw, I like to stand and mash occasionally. With the compression turned in 4 clicks, which is 50%, the slight bob does not hamper my ability or enjoyment either. I only turn the compression full-in when on the streets riding to or from the trailhead.

    First winter ride was muddy and cold but it was so much fun! The YS takes such a beating. I love it.
    Next on the list is some longer travel forks.

    Got mine built up. the night I built it, I'm riding it home from work ( i live in NYC) and I go to stand on the pedals and do a short sprint down my block and my hub goes KAPUT! It's a wtb laser disc lite which seem to be good hubs but have a bit of a history of the clutch spring gadget giving way. WTB is sending me out a new hub body, hopefully that is indeed the problem. IT's also 13 degrees here now (though sunny so I would consider bundling up and hitting some trails!) so I'm getting teased by having this sit here in my living room.

    I'm 6'3" and new to mtb so yes, that is why the steerer is so long right now but I'm probably going to cut it pretty significant'y before ever taking it out and throw a riser bar on there if need be. Still trying to figure out differences between MTB fit and road bike fit. Seems like I definately need to get a setback seatpost on this bike as my knee is WAY in front of the pedal spindle and it just feels awkward right now.

    A setback would probably help a bit with your pedaling position, but overall your cockpit looks very weight-forward, and may not play all that well with the Yelli's short rear end. I understand you're starting off from more of a traditional road / XC mtb style fit on the Yelli, and I think it would feel a little off balance. It'll be a transition for you coming from a road background, but consider tightening up your cockpit for a more upright position. IMO that's what the Yelli is designed for. If you scroll through the photos in this thread, you'll see that the majority of the builds use much shorter stems. I'd guess the majority are less than 90mm. With this style of bike, the stem becomes more of a bike handling component than a fit component. Myself, I'm 6'3" on a large and I started with a 70mm stem but quickly reduced that to 50mm to dial in the handling I wanted.

    I lived and worked in the NYC - Westchester orbit for a few years (man, I miss Curry Hill), but that was during a MTB hiatus for me. I'd love to explore some of the trails back there again sometime. Good luck!

    Thanks for the tips. The stem that is on there is something that I happened to have kicking around it's a 115mm road stem. I do actually have a 90 mm stem that I will go ahead and put on there. I noticed from all the pics almost everyone has the steerer cut very low but I guess with my roadie background I'm being careful to "measure twice, cut once"

    It's interesting to me that at 6'3" your on a large. This xl seems tiny to me but I think a lot of that is from not being able to get the seat back far enough.

    I have short legs: 32" -33" inseams, and the reach is about right for me. Plus mine is built with a 140mm fork, and with such a short rear center, I wouldn't want the front center any longer. Granted, when I bought it, I didn't understand all that- I just looked at the ETT.

    I broke my 650B bike so I decided to put the wheels on my Yelli for awhile. Ive run it like this before for a couple rides and liked it alot but wanted to do a longer term trial to see if I might wanna go 650B on it permanently. My only concern is that the bottom bracket might be too low. It was fine when my fork was at 140mm but its 120mm now. Headed out in a bit for a snow ride

    Almost done - just replaced brake pads, and replaced a broken spoke today. Have a pair of Ardents on the way. I also have a 50mm Straitline stem in blue that I might run. Need to get it on the trails first.

    ^ really nice.

    How did you remove the decals?

    What's your gear ratio and how do you keep the chain tensioned?

    Acetone nail polish remover, rub lightly until they smear off.

    yup but not with perfect results.

    Gearing is 34:19, the chain was new in that shot, have now added a Surly Singulator.

    @yrg they do the job for my riding which is rooty hilly xc and st in forests, no rocks (Surrey, UK). I'll likely put a Ron on the front too. I usually put a mud tyre like a Maxxis Beaver on the back in winter.

    I buy Schwalbe because they go up easily tubeless on my Stans rims, though I've not tried the 2013 models yet, which are a but tighter.

    Those are 2.25s on Stans Arch Ex. I tried 2.35 Hans Dampfs which are very grippy but a bit heavy for our faster rides, and a 2.35 Racing Ralph - not grippy enough.

    I find 2.35 tyres deaden the trail feel a little, I don't need that with a sus fork so prefer the 2.25s.

    Gotten it out 2X so far. One was a quick jaunt on the local loop just to get a feel for it. It was fun. Second ride I took the time to install my new LEV seat post, and got the bike truly opened up on some extended descents with plenty of corners. WOW.

    I was skeptical but this bike is making me a believer of the Yelli hype - it's well deserved. I haven't had this much fun since my last proper 26" f/s rig, it's that much fun. I can't wait to get it further into the woods where the trails are epic and a lot more technical. I'm going for a shorter stem, and I'll install another Hans Dampf 2.35 on the rear. I ran through the lil' Maxxis IKON 2.1 a couple of times on the ride today. OOPS!

    I'm going to take the time to post a full review complete with build data. If I could nit pick two items it would be the super tight clearance w/ a 2X crank and what I think is an over exaggerated sloping top tube. My 38/26 XT crank barely fits the bike - so far it's a non issue but when I missed part of a log ride today it made me think about bending the chain ring and gouging the frame. This did not happen so I'm happy. I'm going to research fitting a 36t chain ring on this crank.

    My thoughts on the top tube and stand over on the bike lead me to cringe at my fairly long seat height. At 79 cm, my seat height looks a little high on most L/19" frames but on the Yelli it looks ridiculous. I say this bike really calls out for an adjustable seat post not only for the obvious performance reasons but also to calm the appearance of what, at first glance, appears to be an ill fitting bike. Personally I don't get concerned about stand over height on bikes. I'd rather have a second bottle cage and less seat post out of the frame. I suppose the cable routing isn't perfect either - how about at least one more cable guide on the frame? With a cable actuated seat post I had to piggy back the seat post cable to my other control's housing. Not a huge deal really but this would help clean up the frame and build.

    Aside from those items - probably from a VERY XC point of view I'm aware, the bike is nearly flawless. I can't imagine a bike handling better than this. Canfield Bros really hit a home run with this frame... I'm gushing. It's been awhile since I've literally LAUGHED hysterically after the downhills like that. Thank YOU Canfield crew, this is what mountain biking is about!
    My one says BRAP!

    My LBS Owner just build a yelli screamy for his wife. So we took mine out and got some awesome pics on a new trail. That orange makes me so jealous. Enjoy!





    His logo on the fork leg










    This was a ond broken house and they built the ramp thru the window.. Big thanks to progressive trail design.


    Also.. what do you guys think of painting in the C and eyes black on the logo? I think it would really change the look of the logo.

    That's how the old headtube badge looked before they cut out the C and the eyes on the new style.

    First ride was today, got to spend a couple hours on it on my lunch break. Believe the hype. This is a really, really fun bike. Super playful and poppy but also loves to be ridden wide open.

    The trace feels pretty good but I'm sure it's still breaking in so I'll reserve full judgement for a little bit now. It feels nice and stiff and pretty plush once it's into it's travel, it is still a little sticky off the top which I'm guessing will go away shortly. I ran it in the 140 setting for that first ride and it felt really good like that, I may just keep it in that setting.

    2013 version of my yelli screamy.
    When i builti last summer i was going for a cheap build as it would be a "second bike". Ended up using that bike almost all the time, it can go everywhere my Canfield One first gen can go!
    S this summer im upgrading it slowly

    From the start i had a -1.5 deg angleset on it..
    Upgraded bars/stem, derailleur, cranks are on their way.
    If it all goes well a lighter wheelset before the end of the season.

    Just realised I never posted any photos of my Yelli in the 1-dot-something years I've owned it... so here are some photos before I'm forced to part with it. Shiny 'n' clean and also in its local habitat... A Yelli with a Fox 34 150/120 Talas is seriously sick!

    No experience of those tyres, though your trails don't look a million miles away from the ones in Hong Kong...

    How much do you lean the bike over when cornering hard?? I found that unless I'm getting a lot of lean the grip is not amazing. lean it over and the psycho genius is amazing. just my observations..

    Whilst they are certainly no XC tyre, I did personally find them faster rolling than 2.4 Ardents. They were also a lot more predictable/secure on tonnes of off-camber stuff I get here in Hongkers.

    Im riding 650b Hans Dampf's on mine in Western PA.

    They roll pretty well for a big knobby. Excellent grip in the corners on dry hardpack or if its damp after a rain. No problem getting up steep climbs. Excellent braking grip.

    If they have any weakness id say they dont hook up on wet roots & rocks as well as Id like, but thats my experience. Someone else might disagree

    No moss...

    What are your thoughts on your 650b Yelli setup so far?

    Im about to take the plunge for an AM enve set but keep going back and forth between 650b and 29er for my yelli. Your opinion would be helpful.

    In the local Enduro race this weekend. The Yelli is a great bike for the sprints and pedal heavy sections of the course, but definitely held it's own when things pointed downhill.

    I just wish they had different dropouts to allow for SS without having to run a tensioner or eccentric setup. Maybe the next generation. I know that I'm 100% sold on the geometry.

    I used to want this, then I ran SS with a Surly Singulator, it works fine and within a few minutes I'd forgotten about it.

    That's a badass setup. Please tell me what bags those are--model names or whatever would be great!

    Haven't taken the yelli out on a major trip yet but going to soon. You happy with it for bikepacking purposes?

    They are custom bags by Porcelain Rocket, which is one guy, Scott Felter, up in Canada. The frame bag was built based on a paper template I sent Scott. The other two bags are standard, except that I got to pick the color.

    It performed fine, this weekend. I think it will be great. I swapped the dropper seatpost for a rigid one - a requirement of the rear bag - and I will be swapping the 1x10 for a triple drivetrain before I head to the Colorado Trail in a few weeks. I had to put a narrower tire on the rear, so that it will clear the front derailleur; Maxxis Ardent 2.25 UST. I'm running a Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 up front, Snake-Skin, TL-ready and the softer compound, can't remember if it's Pacestar or Trailstar. I did notice a lot more fork dive and fork sag with the front bag, will have to up the air pressure.

    Damn, he's got a 2-3 month waiting list

    I can't imagine why you would get rid of them, but please contact me if you end up wanting to sell yours!

    The frame bag wouldn't fit any size but XL very well. I did order them quite a while ago, and they were worth the wait. I'd recommend Scott and his bags. They are very well designed and built, and you can see the results of good design and lots of experience in them.

    Here is my black chrome Yelli. I still have a few more tweaks, but so far I am loving it. After a year + on a single speed Nimble 9 it's a nice change of pace.

    That is a pretty bike, but, is your seatpost not in line with your seat tube? How much insertion do you have in the frame?

    Good eye. The post is slightly bent. I have about 4" in the frame. It's a temporary solution until I get my HiLo back from X-Fusion.

    Right on! Sorry for the peanut gallery comment. I was envisioning the frame buckling at the seat / top / stay junction.

    Latest iteration of my Yelli. Scrapped the white fork, lost the FD, freshened the grips...

    I went with a SID RCT 120mm 51mm offset fork this time. If it was possible for this bike to handle better than it did, this was the solution. There is something about a bike's "trail" that makes it steer with your eyes and hips.

    This is a bold statement: this is hands down my favorite bike I've ever owned!

    slightly bent is a short step away from catastrophic failure. Spend $50 and get a new one. Not trying to be a dick but it's a whole lot cheaper than puncturing a leg artery. Also sell that HiLo and get something that works, these frames seem to demand an adjustable post.

    @plume black is the colour for me too, I've also gone 'murdered out' (almost) and rubbed the decals off too. Will get some fresher pics.

    I took my Yelli to BikePark Wales | Bike Park Wales | Mountain Biking Wales last weekend, it was perfect on the reds and blues (I didn't ride any blacks there yet).

    Agreed re steering with the hips, that's where the benefit of the shorter chainstays kicks in IMO.

    I have another aluminum post laying around that I would use. I know using the ti post is a bit of a risk. Like I said it is a very temporary solution. I really prefer the ride of the ti. The HiLo works great. I have had it for over a year with only a single issue. It developed a bit of sag when I put my weight on it. With this frame unlike the Nimble 9 it was on I need every bit of post I have in the frame. X-Fusion was great to work with. I sent it back, and they are fixing it under warranty. It will be back in my hands on Monday.

    Ha! I have been looking at a KS. Much cleaner cable routing. It's hard to justify a Lev when the HiLo works so well.

    Well.... got the Yelli built up last night. I am smitten.

    Meet "Alberta." Named for the girl mascot of my alma mater, whose colors happen to be orange and blue.







    Shake down ride today, big ride tomorrow.

    I have to get a pic later with her sibling, my Nimble 9.

    Nice! Thomson dropper will be my next purchase, but it'll be a while. Looks sweet on your frame.

    Is that a size Small? Having trouble digging up a photo of one. With the TT that low (sweet! I need standover) a lot of the ones that I see and think are smalls are actually mediums. Been through this thread a coupld of times in the past as well... could have missed seeing a small, but don't think so.

    THIS is what you want/need. Just swallow the big hoop pill and do it!

    I will say this, they currently have all the colors in the small... and once they sell out (they will) I would guess it'll be another few months before they get any more in...

    Couple pics from the shakedown ride...





    Will have to post a review (specifically of how this bike compares to my Nimble 9) later... I was very surprised how different the two bikes are.

    Definitely looking forward to your comparison. It is tough to choose between such well specc'd frames.

    I think I'd like to at least rub off the top tube graphics. What did you use? I've heard rumors and mutterings of nail polish remover? People have knocked my choice of fork but for me the SID is nice. I'd love to see one with a Pike though. If I can't swing an entirely new bike for 2014 which might be really likely now maybe I'll try a 140mm fork on this bike, keep the SID for "racing" days.

    The top tube graphics on mine started to come off with Deep Woods Off (rubbed my leg on the top tube). I took the rest off with nail polish remover.

    Yes, acetone based.

    It makes sense to me, I'm running a Rev at 120mm, the bottom end of the Rev's travel options. I don't need more travel so I may as well try and find a lighter fork for 120mm.

    Also my Revs were stuck at 100mm for a while, the bike handled fine for my use.

    Yup ...and red is faster and climbs better too.

    Yeah I've owned several Revelations, always a nice fork for me. The SID feels plush through all of it's travel and I was able to find a 51mm offset version which really sealed the decision for me.

    I also like the red frame. That location looks familiar FatTire but I can't place it... WNC?
    My one says BRAP!
